    Why This Site?

    Enrico (aka Savoia) has long wanted to start his own forum, due to his passion for aviation, but there is a big difference between cobbling together the odd post and being responsible for something like this. Meanwhile, an old acquaintance, Phil Croucher, was needing a way for his students and instructors to interact from the remote places they often found themselves in. The logo uses a roundel that is a composite of the Royal Air Force and Aeronautica Militare (Italian Air Force) roundels, symbolising the cooperation between them. A similar device was employed by the Anglo-German-Italian consortium, Panavia Aircraft. The blue and green in the text again represents the British-Italian cooperation, and the light blue text of the motto and the feathered wing represents the sky.
